News Corp said newspapers from the states of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia would no longer go out on paper, only online. “It was not easy to make this decision. The coronavirus crisis has provoked unprecedented economic difficulties and we are doing everything we can to preserve as many jobs as possible. We were forced to stop printing our local editions because of restrictive measures within the fight against the coronavirus,” Michael Miller, News Corp's executive director for Australia, said.
Even before the start of the pandemic, many media groups moved to online publications, France Press notes.
